Spring 2013 Meeting of the
Workshop on Dynamical Systems and Related Topics

April 4-7 (Thursday-Sunday), 2013

Department of Mathematics
University of Maryland, College Park

The annual Maryland-Penn State Spring Dynamics Meeting will take place in College Park, MD during the period from April 4 till April 7, 2013.


To register for the conference, please using this registration form. The deadline is March 22 .

If you expect accommodation and/or travel reimbursement you also need to fill in this second form: Travel request. We remind those who expect travel reimbursement to fly with a US carrier.

Conference events:

  • Conference banquet will be held on the Rotunda of the Department of Mathematics on Friday 7pm. Banquet cost is $10 for graduate student and $20 for everyone else.
  • On Saturday evening there will be a party chez Vadim Kaloshin.
  • Please indicate in the Registration whether you would like to attend the banquet and/or the party.

    Conference program will be available soon Conference program (with abstracts) is available here.


    The conference motel will be the Quality Inn, 7200 Baltimore Blvd. (Route 1), College Park MD 20740, 301-276-1000. It is within walking distance of the Math department. You can walk to Quality Inn from College Park Metro Station by going west along Calvert Road (exactly 1/2 mile, about 10-15 minutes); alternately you can call the hotel (301-276-1000) for shuttle pickup (we are not sure of the reliability of this pickup).

    We expect to provide lodging support at the Quality Inn for conference participants, at shared room rate. We are encouraging participants to share a room as only 1/2 the room rate will be reimbursed. Reservations must be done directly by the participants with the Quality Inn before March 22. Say that you are coming for the Dynamical Systems Workshop since there is a special rate. The lodging support will be reimbursed after the conference.

    If you want to share a room and do not have a roommate, send an email to mguardia@umd.edu. We will try to find one for you.

    Travel and parking information

    Click here for how to arrive to the math department, either by car or by public transportation. This webpage also contains a map for parking. Please note that this year's conference is NOT during our campus spring break, so all parking rules must be followed strictly. We CANNOT reimburse or waive parking tickets. On weekdays until 4:00 PM, you must park in a visitor lot (expensive -- up to $15/day), the closest of which is marked in yellow on the map at the link above. The Math building, where the conference will be, is also in yellow on that map.

    The Maryland-Penn State Dynamics Workshop

    This workshop has been hosted each fall since 1991 by Penn State University and each spring since 1992 by the University of Maryland, and is jointly sponsored by the two institutions. We are grateful to the National Science Foundation and to our Department of Mathematics for their continued support of these workshops.

    You can click here for past programs of the Maryland conferences, information on Dynamics and Chaos at Maryland, and the home page of the Center for Dynamics and Geometry at Penn State, which contains information on the Penn State meetings.
